TFF 46 Announces 2019 Poster Artist Edwina White

We proudly announce artist Edwina White as our TFF 46 2019 poster artist. Telluride Film Festival’s prestigious annual gathering for film industry insiders, cinema enthusiasts, filmmakers and critics takes place every Labor Day weekend in the picturesque town of Telluride, Colorado. The 46th edition of TFF will run August 30-September 2, 2019.


Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, Edwina White now works variously as an illustrator, fine artist and animator from her post in Brooklyn. Her editorial illustrations have appeared worldwide in the New York Times, WSJ, Vanity Fair, Harpers Bazaar and featured in Print and Taschen’s top 100 Illustrators. White’s solo gallery shows in New York and Sydney have been based on playing cards, kites, crosswords and, this spring, automatic abstract paintings influenced by old science charts and the internal world. She was commissioned by director Jason Silverman to create the animations for his film Sembene!, an African documentary about Senegalese writer/director, Ousmane Sembene. The early stages were shot by Jay-Z for Life +Times, and the film premiered at the 2015 Sundance, Cannes and Telluride Film Festivals. Her original artwork is included amongst collections of Ballroom Marfa, Angela Missoni and Sting.


“When Julie Huntsinger asked me to make a poster for Telluride film festival, I was preparing for a show of abstract paintings,” said White. “I relished the prospect of celebrating filmmaking by incorporating it’s own visual language. So I made my own painting with light. A stenciled camera form cuts out of the darkness. Blooming in RGB with a pianola score. It’s meant to reflect the order of filmmaking: from capturing a frame and lighting it; to recording it on reels; to the editing, sound and color-correction; to playing out in a theatre.


“I am over the moon to make this artwork for the 46th Telluride Film Festival. I feel so very honored to be asked to dance in the shadows of truly great artists, and feel charged by the collective warmth of the Festival team.”


"Edwina's style is singular, fresh and captivating,” said executive director Julie Huntsinger. “Her charm is as obvious in her art as it is in her person. We’re thrilled with the poster she has created for us.”
